So, it's almost May?

Hey all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog. The time gap had nothing to do with lack of things to say. Ask anyone, I won’t shut the hell up about anything and everything that captures my interest. But, well, I’ve been busy. I’m working on Inside 3.0, which is SUPER awesome. I’m incredibly grateful to be able help develop a new...

These two quotes struck a chord.

Today, I read Naval's "How To Win At Life... Without Getting Lucky". Two of the 8 bullet points really struck a chord with me, so I decided to share them with the HEY World. • Forty-hour workweeks are a relic of the Industrial Age. Today, it's best to function like an athlete - train and sprint, then rest and reassess. • The modern min...

8 Simple Steps to Achieve Hyper-Focus

I'm a continuous self-improver and life experimenter. Some might say, "that's awesome! I I wish I had that determination!" It drives me wild when people say that, because I see it differently. To get real for a moment, I have a constant fear of not being good enough - I'm sure some psychologist would try and bring that back to my child...

My Daily Routine For The Next 7 Days

Hi, I'm Alex and I'm a workaholic. I don't mean that to sound crazy, but I love working and well, I'm a little concerned that I might be working too much. From the second I open my eyes to the moment I close them, I'm checking emails, responding to requests, getting out of bed to do just one more thing, making myself a 24/7 on call wor...

Men Wanted For Hazardous Journey

I recently finished reading Steve Case's biography and manifesto on the future, The Third Wave. In the book, Case referred to an old ad placed by famed explorer Ernest Shackleton as a metaphor for entrepreneurship. The ad Shackleton placed in the 1912 London Times was dubbed "Men Wanted For Hazardous Journey." After reading this the ad...

Give me the punks...

Give me the punks. Give me the hackers. The crazy ones. Give me the trouble makers and the dreamers. Give me the scrappy ones. The independent ones. Give me the free thinkers. The stay small and fight the good fight believers. The world is full of giants. But that shit doesn't get me off. Give me the underdogs. The ones that are rough ...

Surfing Rules for Life and Business

When I read a book, I try and take down notes and key takeaways to revisit at a later time. This morning, I was going through an old notebook and came across these notes I took on Surfing Rules for Life and Business, taken from Guy Kawasaki's 2019 book, Wise Guy: Lessons From A Life. In Kawasaki's book, he shares the 12 rules of surfin...

The Quest For An Analog Life

But as I got older and fell more into work, those things just sort of fell by the wayside. But when COVID-19 was on the rise and the world began to shut down, it forced me to start finding altern...

What Is A T-Shaped Marketer?

Are you a marketer that does everything under the sun? From paid media and analytics, to branding and web-design? If you said to 'yes' to yourself just now, then you might just be a T-Shaped Marketer. What is a T-Shaped Marketer? Solid question! To be honest, until a few months ago, I had no idea either.
